  1. Toronto gallery cancels exhibit of white artist's paintings over...Read the original story w/Photo

    May 7, 2017 | National Post

    The work of Toronto painter Amanda PL is infused with bright colours and bold outlines often associated with an indigenous art style. But for many of those familiar with the Woodland School of Art, as the genre is also known, it smacks of cultural appropriation by a young artist with no claim to the tradition. 2 comments

    May 5, 2017 | National Post

    Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is returning to a Brooklyn courtroom Friday, a day after a judge rejected his request to be allowed in the general inmate population. The 59-year-old defendant famous for twice escaping from prison in Mexico lost his bid Thursday to relax the terms of his confinement at a lower Manhattan lockup when U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan concluded that solitary confinement was appropriate.

  5. John Gotti's grandson and 82-year-old 'Goodfellas' mobster charged over road-rage car fireRead the original story

    Mar 23, 2017 | National Post

    An 82-year-old mob figure who was acquitted in connection with the storied 1978 Lufthansa heist in 2015 was indicted again on Wednesday, this time along with John Gotti's grandson, accused of conduct as petulant and petty as the $6 million robbery of the terminal at Kennedy Airport was grand: setting fire to the car of a motorist who had cut him off on the streets of Queens. And if the indignity of being charged in such a scheme was not bad enough, court papers describe its execution as so clumsy that had the elder John Gotti, a crime figure once known as the Teflon Don, not died in prison after a 1992 conviction he might well die now of shame.
